About the property

One Block To The Beach; 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Private Deck, Spacious Living

Fully updated and newly decorated townhome in the heart of St. Augustine Beach. Park your car and relax; the beach is one block away with many restaurants and shops in walking distance. The home decor is all new and the latest in coastal design. With 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, there is plenty of room to accommodate 8 people. There is a very private deck with a large eating area and fire pit. Out front is a sweet porch with chairs for talking to the locals or relaxing after a day at the beach. The kitchen has granite countertops, subway tile and all brand new appliances. It is a corner unit so there are plenty of windows to open to listen to the ocean.

About Karen, Jim and Ellie Russell

My brother, sister in-law and myself wanted to have a place where our family could get together after our parents passed away. We grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida, yet as we grew up so did the distance between us. Two years ago we rented a vacation home for a family reunion in St. Augustine. We fell in love with the area and decided to get a place of our own.

Karen, Jim and Ellie Russell purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Karen, Jim and Ellie Russell chose St. Augustine Area

We spent more than 6 months looking for the right place. We looked at many different condos and homes from on the beach to the many neighborhoods on the island. Nothing caught all of our eyes until we found this property on A Street. It was beautiful, within walking distance to many restaurants, happenings in the area, and especially the beach, and had the space we were hoping for.

What makes this townhome unique

The benefit of this property is the home itself and the location. You know what they say... Location, location, location. The icing on the cake is that you can catch a shuttle and head into the historic St. Augustine district. You NEVER have to get in your car. The beach is one block away and the city pier (that hosts many fun activities) is only a half mile away.

Great location for a visit to St. Augustine Beach ! A lovely home

  • 5 of 5

This well appointed home, in a great location, provided a place for a wonderful family Christmas. A short walk to the beach, the taco shop and a coffee shop made this a home run hit! Four adults and a well mannered small dog were happy. All bedrooms upstairs allowed plenty of space for quiet for those who needed it and room to visit for others. The cable subscription was not sufficient for the sports fans among us. Other than that it was great. Thanks to this family for making their home available. I would not hesitate to return.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a great stay. We are working on the cable situation, but Comcast does not provide very good service for what they provide. Options are limited, but we are working on it. Hope you come to visit again.

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at St. Augustine Beach. The condo was clean and well maintained. We could not have asked for a better location. We loved being close to great places to eat and a quick walk to the beach.Karen responded to all of our emails in a timely manner. I have already recommended this place to others and would love to go back.

We liked the brunch and lunch menu at Cafe 11, Obi's Filling Station was fun, and the coconut shrimp at Mango Mango was delicious. Everyone around town was pleasant and friendly. We were in town for a wedding and we had some last minutes emergencies, South Beach Dry Cleaners & Shirley's Florist were the best. Karen even helped us with last minute accommodations for the Bride & Groom.

Loved, Loved, Loved our time in St. Augustine and at Beauty & the Beach!

Great stay!

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home. It is very clean and kept up. The outdoor area is excellent. Short walk to bike rentals, little shops & bar! The beach is just a few steps away! and its pet friendly! We would totally rent Karen's home again!

Wonderful Time, Beautiful Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean, well appointed and a quick walk to the beach. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, and hope to return some day. The house is within walking distance of several fun bars as well as family friendly restaurants. Even though it is located amidst the bustle of the beach, the house is a peaceful oasis. It provides the perfect balance of activity and gorgeous scenery.

Location, Fun, Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great visit! The pictures do not do Beauty and the Beach justice. Everything and more as far as the beautiful, lush accommodations and only one block to the beach is definitely a plus. Loved the large shady oak trees cooling and protecting the location. There is plenty of excellent beach bars and restaurants within a very short walking distance, downtown is a short Uber trip and the falling stars and sea turtle nests are unbelievably wonderful! This will definitely become a habit on my list of places to stay! Thanks to the owner, Karen!

Great location, loved the porch

  • 5 of 5

We loved getting up every morning to walk on the beach and then stopping by the new Kookaburra coffee shop a few blocks up. Mango Mango's restaurant (right across the street) is one of our favorites, and we enjoyed discovering the Beach Comber for hamburgers just up the street and right on the beach! We loved the porch for entertaining -- complete with gas grill and table for 8. Our daughter goes to Flagler College, so we've stayed in a few different locations when we've visited before. This was our favorite -- near the beach and a quick drive to the historic area. We recommend the green trolley tour and the Flagler's Legacy historical tour.
